Can McGregor Win in the First Minute?

Conor McGregor UFC

What can Conor McGregor do next? Well, for starters he’s looking to add the lightweight title to his resume, but a brash prediction made at the UFC 196 press conference has fight fans debating if McGregor has a quick finish in-store for Rafael dos Anjos.

McGregor boldly claimed that he would “dust Rafael inside one minute,” which has prompted online sportsbook Bovada to create a prop on the possibility of the prediction coming to light. The book has Yes at +700, and No coming back at -2000.


UFC Fight Night 82: Betting Odds Preview

The former UFC 196 turned Fight Night 82 takes place this Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. A card that once featured a UFC heavyweight title fight has been relegated from PPV status after the cancellation of that bout. Instead, the card features Johny Hendricks and Stephen Thompson clashing with major welterweight division implications hanging in the balance. The co-main event is Roy Nelson vs Jared Rosholt (and yes, that pains me to say).


UFC: Jones vs Cormier Rematch Odds

Jon Jones Daniel Cormier

It seems that Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier are on a collision course once again. With Jones never officially losing his UFC Light Heavyweight Title and many not seeing Cormier as the true champion because of that, Bones will get an immediate rematch for the strap at UFC 197.


UFC on Fox 18 Betting Odds Preview

The light heavyweight title picture looks to get slightly less muddy when Anthony Johnson and Ryan Bader clash at the Prudential Center at UFC on Fox 18. Johnson vs Bader is as close as the division can come to presenting a title eliminator with Jon Jones still yet to make his return from his suspension following a hit-and-run incident. The co-main event will see top 10 heavyweights Josh Barnett and Ben Rothwell clash with the hopes that either fighter is just two wins away from a potential title shot.


UFC: Khabib vs Ferguson Betting Odds

After months of waiting and one cancelled fight, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson are expected to meet in a lightweight title eliminator this April. The two fighters were originally scheduled to fight this past December, but injuries continued to strike Khabib as he had to withdraw from the bout due to knee injuries.

Bovada has opened Khabib as the -205 favorite with Ferguson coming back at +165.


UFC 196: Holly Holm vs Miesha Tate Odds

After months of speculation, Holly Holm will make her first UFC title defense against Miesha Tate at UFC 196. Holm shocked the world by claiming the Woman’s Bantamweight title by decimating Ronda Rousey at UFC 193.

“The Preacher’s Daughter” has opened as a heavy -350 favorite against Tate according to Bovada. “Cupcake” is coming back at +265.


MMA Fighter Rankings: Pound-for-Pound

For decades, boxing observers attempted to pin a Best Pound-For-Pound Fighter label on one boxer. Whether it was Tyson in his heyday, Roy Jones in numerous weight classes, or the Pacquiao vs Mayweather debate, fans wanted to pick one fighter as the best. It’s the same for MMA, with even more heated debate as the UFC now dwarfs boxing in popularity.


UFC Fight Night 81 Betting Odds Preview

The first free fights of 2016 take place at the TD Garden on January 17 and it will feature a bantamweight title fight between T.J. Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz. The headlining fight is a pseudo-title unification belt after Cruz never lost the belt but surrendered it after dealing with a cavalcade of injuries. The co-main event features Anthony Pettis making his return to the Octagon after losing his lightweight title to Rafael dos Anjos when he faces Eddie Alvarez.


Who Will Be UFC Champs at End of 2016?

The world of mixed martial arts is in constant flux. It's a world where you either grow or die. There are currently 10 weight classes in the UFC and seven of them had a different champion on January 1st, 2016 than January 1st, 2015.

With the boon of MMA over the past decade, a new class of all-around fighters are making their way into the UFC and that has created the most depth and parity in the company’s history. With more talent in the UFC today than ever before, a championship is never safe no matter whom the opponent is (isn’t that right Ronda).
